Your wedding day is one of the most important times of your life. Why waste time stressing over every detail? Investing in a wedding planner not only saves you time and money but also releases a little pressure off of you so you can actually enjoy the process. Here are three reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
1. Weddings are stressful
When you hire a wedding planner, you are hiring someone to absorb the stress for you and your partner. This is supposed to be one of the most joyful times of your life; you should enjoy it! A wedding planner is there to guide you through those daunting checklists, keep you organized and within your budget, and answers the hundreds of questions that arise during your wedding day.
2. Wedding budgets can get out of control
If you hire someone for more than a day (or month) of coordination, budget management can often be worked into your package if it’s not included already. You can be the most money-savvy person on the planet, and you will still blow out your wedding budget. Having a realistic boundary set is a healthy way to start a marriage so that you don’t enter the next chapter of your life drowning in post-nuptial debt. A wedding planner helps you stick to your goals.
3. Wedding planners can save you money
Wedding planners have the best contacts in the industry. They save you time and money by putting you in touch with the right vendors and wedding professionals who are within your budget. This allows you to skip the hundreds of phone calls and emails to these people. Explain to your wedding planner what your vision and goals are, and they will point you in the right direction.
4. You will have a life outside of planning your wedding
This is perhaps the best reason to hire a wedding planner. Having a life outside of wedding planning, enjoying your blissful moments with your sweetheart is irreplaceable. Let someone who understands what you want do the hard work, and spend more time enjoying your engagement.
Wedding planners love what they do and know what they are doing. Put the reins in their hands and take the stress off your shoulders. You will look back and be so thankful you chose to go this route, and will remember so much more of the fun you had rather than the stress you endured.
